The Cloran Mansion is an excellent place to stay during your visit to Galena. Cheryl and Carmine are very friendly, making you feel welcome upon arrival, providing a tour of the rooms available for use by all guests as well as the room in which you will stay. The in-room fireplace was perfect for the cooler weather during the last...

The Cloran Mansion was a wonderful place for my husband and I to stay for 2 nights. Very comfortable and cozy rooms, quiet and relaxing. Carmine and Cheryl are very caring hosts and the breakfasts are outstanding.

My husband and I stayed at The Cloran Mansion B&B for 2 nights. We were welcomed by Carmine and he took us to our room and explained the fireplace and the spa tub as well as the TV remotes etc. The fridge was stocked with water and Sodas and the coffe put was in the relaxation room next to ours....

This was our second stay at the Cloran Mansion and it won't be our last. I would recommend this B&B for many reasons. It's in a great location, the grounds are beautiful and offer an adorable gazebo for a relaxing evening of stargazing, but most of all you get Carmine and Cheryl. They are sweet people who genuinely enjoy being...

My wife and I visit Galena and the Cloran Mansion every year in the fall and it's perfect every time. Cheryl and Charmine are the sweetest and take great care of their guests. The breakfast, every morning, is incredible. We've gone through most the day without needing to eat much more. We've also stayed in almost every room there now...

Carmen and Cheryl really know what they're doing! Such a wonderful house and homey atmosphere. The breakfast was spectacular ---my husband and I loved the potatoes--- and we couldn't ask for more on our honeymoon! We stayed in mid-November 2015 and must have picked the right time because Galena was pretty quiet and non-too crowded! Definitely try the Tower Suite,...

We stayed here for our anniversary and found the Cloran Mansion to be an average B&B. The owners Cheryl and Carmine are very friendly and I feel do try hard to make their guests comfortable. We had a private dinner for us one night, which was wonderful. The breakfast both mornings were great as well. However, I feel the mansion...

Thank you for your comments. The Tower Room is a unique room. The shower is small to accommodate the room. It is the most requested room but not is for everyone. We will be certain to address the concerns you addressed.

We were married a few days ago at Cloran Mansion and absolutely loved every little detail that Cheryl and Carmine provided to make it so very special. They went above and beyond to make it just right, even though it was just the two of us! We stayed in the Tower Room, which was beautiful and had the most comfortable...

We have been coming to the Cloran Mansion for years, but this is the first time we visited Cloran Mansion in the fall. We always enjoy the homemade breakfast that Carmine and Cheryl make, but this year because we were there in the fall they incorporated apple and pumpkin flavors-YUM! The fall weather cooperated perfectly so that we could enjoy...
